DynCorp International has announced Steve Gaffney will replace the outgoing Bill Ballhaus as chief executive officer and president.
Gaffney already serves as chairman of DI's board of directors and will depart IAP Worldwide Services where he was CEO since January 2009.
“Bill and I have worked closely together over the past several months, discussing the company's operations, management and future. I look forward to continuing to work with Bill in his role as a key strategic advisor and on the company's Board,“ Gaffney said. “He deserves a great deal of credit for expanding the company's global footprint and establishing a solid foundation of corporate goals and core values that will guide the company's future success.“
Gaffney has been a defense industry mainstay for the last quarter century. Along with his tenure at IAP Worldwide, he also served in a variety of roles at ITT.
